Upgrade to local bus service

the newly improved bus service connecting Churchill and Langford with Bristol, and the opportunity for local people to try it out free of charge.
Launched in September 2018, the Unibus U2 bus travels between the University of Bristol’s Langford campus and Queens Road, Clifton. The service runs hourly on weekdays from around 8am until 6pm, providing an ideal public transport option for people heading into Bristol for work, shopping or leisure.

Following a successful first three months of operation and the introduction of an improved timetable in January, the U2 is being promoted to the communities of Churchill, Langford and Redhill with the offer of a free travel week from Monday 18 to Friday 22 February 2019.

The U2 is a public bus service operated on behalf of the University by First West of England using a fleet of modern, low-emission double decker vehicles with free wi-fi and USB charging points.

The service is part of First’s West of England network meaning customers can take advantage of the fare offers and ticket options available on all First buses across the region. Full timetable and fare information is available on the Bristol Unibus pages of First’s website.

But please note that during the free travel week, there’s no need for a ticket – customers can just hop aboard and enjoy the ride.
In advance of the free travel week, the University will be promoting the U2 service across the communities of Langford, Churchill and Redhill with a poster campaign and mailshot to local homes and businesses.

                                                                     

NORTH SOMERSET DISTRICT COUNCIL
Changes to bus service A5

North Somerset Council and Carmel Bristol have recently been reviewing the performance of bus service A5 and have agreed to make the following changes from 4 February 2019:

Service A5 will no longer serve Congresbury and Yatton due to low usage.

• The service will be operated with one bus and one driver to reduce operational costs and to ensure the service is financially sustainable for the operator.

• The service will operate four return journeys a day (three to Winford), with an additional return journey to Winscombe in the late afternoon/early evening.

• A Saturday service will be reintroduced following customer feedback.

Connection times at Bristol Airport have been improved:

o Morning journeys from Winscombe are timed to meet the A3 Airport Flyer service to Weston-super-Mare.

o Afternoon journeys are timed to depart towards Winscombe following the arrival of A3 Airport Flyer from Weston-super-Mare.

o Residents living in post code areas BS40, BS41 8, BS48, BS49, BS29 or BS25 can benefit from a Bristol Airport local area concession card for discounted (or free, with a Diamond Travelcard) travel on bus services A1 and A3 – more information at www.bristolairport.co.uk/about-us/community

We will be producing new timetable booklets, which will be available on the bus in due course, or can be requested by contacting North Somerset Public Transport on public.transport@n-somerset.gov.uk or 01934 426 715.
